March 29, 2010 — According to Rolling Stone Magazine, The 2009 year-end Nielsen SoundScan numbers Reveal that Taylor Swift edged Susan Boyle in terms of album sales, and that the Beatles and Michael Jackson can still move major units. But how did the music biz do overall last year? Slightly better than the year before. Total music purchases were up 2.1 percent over 2008, as ’09 brought in 1.545 billion overall music sales — which factors in albums, singles, digital tracks and music videos – compared to the 1.513 billion combined in 2008. Yet still, As the Album sales continue to remain subpar, The Music industry continues to adapt.
Digital Download record holder Flo Rida and Grammy award winning T-Pain broke the digital sales record in 2007 with there smash single “Low”, which sold 467,000 copies in it’s first week, over five million to date. Fast forward to 2010, The duo’s next smash has been released, only this time a widely known brand is now featured in the song title. “Zoosk Girl” is the name, and digital downloads are the game. T-Pain and Flo Rida are set to release another single entitled “I’m Dancin'”, which is currently slated as the lead single from T-Pain’s upcoming album “RevolveR”.
“Flo Rida was in the studio with Pain doing a song called “I’m Dancin'”, which is featured on T-Pain’s next album”, Said Poe Boy Music Group CEO Elrin “E-Class” Prince. “One of T-Pain’s boys, Tay Dizm, was talking about how he met some fine girl on Zoosk. He was talking all kind of mess about how good she looked and that she actually had good credit. T-Pain responded from the booth and was like “I need me a Zoosk Girl”. The jokes then turned into a song and It went from there.”
“I then hooked up with my buddy who owns The Kluger Agency, they handle most major artists relationships with brands. Since the song was clearly a smash, we decided to work something strategic out with Zoosk to amp the promotions for the song, which is now Flo’s Hype Single off his album The Only One”.
“Zoosk Girl”, which was leaked early this week will be officially released later this month with a music video available on all major televised and online channels. “When you have a hot record, Anything is possible. The song could be called Publix and still do well on the charts. Lyrical Content isn’t as important as the general message, which is “I need the perfect girl…A Zoosk Girl”, Replied Adam Kluger of The Kluger Agency when asked about the song.
According to Flo Rida’s record label, This is one of many hot tracks off of Flo’s Third Studio Album. Look out world, Here Flo Rida comes!
